Selecting the Best Bed headboards

Even though the usage of the word ‘bed’ is used interchangeably with mattress, it is a piece of furniture with an integrated footboard and headboard. The headboard is different; usually, it is a piece of furniture that you buy to work with an existing bed frame. And that, most of the time, is just an ordinary steel rack on wheels or legs. Beds make a strong impact in your room. It cannot be moved around much. On the other hand, a headboard can offer a bit of flexibility, it being lighter. Some headboards are permanently fixed to the wall. The beds need to be pushed underneath it. Others sit on legs, and there are also sizeable rectangular box upholstered ones which sit on the floor. The beds are either fixed or pressed against it. Though there are different kinds of headboards, there is no superior one. It all comes down to your choice and the style of your room.

Parameters to Select the Best Bed Headboards

Shop Smart

A hardwood frame that has high-density foam padding covered back and a robust wear-resistant fabric is always a better place to start. A custom fit slip over can be a bonus for cleaning and effortless style swaps.

Measure Up

It is imperative to measure the height before you buy headboards for your house. If it is too short, stacks of pillow or a tall mattress might obscure it. It is also vital that you check it by sitting on the bed for lean-back comfort.

Install with Ease

Most of the headboards online or in showrooms come with hardware. It attaches to standard bed frames. They can be easily wall-mounted, using interlocking hanging brackets or D-rings.


In case you have pets that can scratch your beautiful upholstered bed headboard, you need to consider your options carefully. In that case, it might be more practical to opt for a metal one instead. The metal ones are even easier to clean.

Headboard Designs

First and foremost, you need to have an understanding of the material used before you purchase headboards online so that you can narrow down and eliminate ones with poor quality material. Headboards are mainly made with wood, lacquer and fabric. In case of wood, you need to know whether it’s solid wood or veneer because veneer, even though there is nothing wrong with it, chips more readily.
● You need to know if there is a warranty on your headboard or not, and what it covers.
● You need to know whether the stitching is proper or not in case of an upholstered piece or if it is glued together correctly or not. Next is to see if it is protected from termites. Unlike most other adhesives, Fevicol does not cause bubble formation de-bonding, which causes uneven and swollen appearance and detachment from the base.
● A headboard isn’t something that you change on an annual basis, just like any other piece of furniture. So it is crucial that you are sure of your purchase. It should be well made, reasonably priced, durable and sturdy. Always check for scratches, deep cracks and bent hardware.
● A headboard has a significant impact on the style of your space and can change and redefine the mood of your room. Here is a list of the common materials that are used in headboards, along with installation and sizing guides to help you select the best headboard.
